These are, hands down, the BEST metal shears I have ever used! They are reasonably priced and indestructible. Large comfortable handles and sharp blades allow you to cut light gauge metals (22 gauge or thinner) without fatigue. I use them constantly on 24 gauge copper, and they “cut like butta!” 8″ overall length. Lightweight, comfortable, durable, and sharp ~ This would be one of the last tools I would part with in my studio!
